Anything to be aware of when changing strings on JTV 69?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone: I am going to have to change my strings eventually, I am happy with the factory gauge and brand.


Is there anything I need to be careful with in regards to the piezo pick ups?


Should I change one at a time or take them all off at once?




I never owned a guitar with a spring tremolo before so that is the reason I ask about the one string at a time .

I recommend taking one off at a time. If you take them all off, then the springs can pull the tremolo bridge out of position, forcing you to take the plastic back plate off to loosen the claw, reattach the springs, put the bridge back in place, then re-tighten the claw after the new strings are on. Not much fun.


What? I didn't learn that by experience....
